As the 09-10 season approaches, there is still many teams hurrying to try and make their team better still, before the opening night tip-off. With that being, there is a lot of questions that fans want to know this season. Is Lebron going to rack up another MVP Award? Are the Cavs the team to beat? How will Artest do along side Kobe in LA? But with all these questions surrounding players in their prime, why don't we talk a little about the future of the NBA.

The future of the NBA is knocking on the doorsteps of today's superstars. For instance look at the young talent the Grizzles are putting together. Look at Blake Griffen and the Clips. What about the young Atlanta team as well. Oh and you can't forget about Rose and Roy either. The next generation of NBA talent is rising up and carrying the league. Yes we all know that Kobe and Lebron are the faces of the NBA right now, but down the road who will be carrying on their legacy? Will it be any of the players mentioned in the article, or will fresh new faces come out of college and be ready to carry the NBA?With all that talent, it got me thinking, so leave your comments and let me know who you think will be the next generation of young NBA talent.
